The university lecturer conducts research in computational aerosol physics, and teaching in the field of sustainability.
The appointee to a university lecturership holds an applicable doctoral degree, is able to provide high-quality research-based teaching and supervise theses and dissertations.
The research is based on molecular dynamic simulations of molecular systems relevant to atmospheric phase transition processes, and is strongly connected to research themes of the computational aerosol physics group. The ideal candidate has experience of one or more of the following: molecular-level surface modelling, especially of ice or other atmospheric systems, including nanosized droplets and bubbles; modelling of molecular collisions and/or evaporations; conformational sampling and stability analysis of molecular clusters. Experience of, or willingness to learn machine learning tools is also considered a strong merit. The university lecturer position is research-oriented.
The university lecturer is expected to be active in applying funding for and coordination of research and/or development projects related to computational aerosol physics and/or the Climate University. The main teaching responsibility of the university lecturer consists of giving 2-4 Climate University courses per year. Part of the teaching duties may consist of other development work related to the Climate University network. The university lecturer also participates in the supervision of Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral theses.
When assessing the qualifications of the applicants, attention is paid to scientific publications and other research results of scientific value, teaching experience and pedagogical training, the ability to produce learning materials, other teaching merits and, if necessary, a teaching demonstration.
The candidate must be fluent in English. Skills in Finnish and/or Swedish are also considered merit.
